Top Three Juniors, plus Who Gets the Dog?

DFR Blogger Kayla Bertagnolli introduces a trio of young ladies who are currently the nation’s top three junior handlers. “It’s not often that our top juniors are put in the spotlight,” says Kayla, who is giving readers a chance to get to know some of the dog sport’s finest junior handlers. Meet Meagan and Caroline, who have already qualified for both AKC/Eukanuba and Westminster 2014, and Nicki who has the highest junior score based on handlers defeated this year.

Although a team of supporters can often achieve great things together, what happens when the career is over and it’s time for the dog to go home? Billy ponders the sometimes uncomfortable question, “Who gets the dog?”
